There was no lack of spirit at the HomeLife Academy (HLA) office as staff and counselors, along with some of our HLA families, celebrated the HLA Back 2 School Bash Week. It was a wonderful time full of giveaways, fun and over the top spirit.
Everyone was invited to the Back 2 School Bash. The only way to participate was to show your spirit throughout the week. We started on Monday with Decades Day, continued Tuesday with Tourist Tuesday, Wednesday with School Spirit Day, Thursday with Backwards Day and finished the week on Friday with Crazy Hair Day.
Some came out of their comfort zones while others were just themselves all week, taking advantage of the different daily spirit themes. If you know any of these HLA people, you know who was just being themselves.
Some of them took their decades seriously and went all out dressing in attire that reflected their favorite period in time. They flashed back all the way to the 1960s, stopped in the 1970s and made their way back through to the 1990s.
Working for HLA is like always being on vacation. We really do enjoy the work we do and have a wonderful time. Some participated by sharing pictures from favorite vacations they have taken in the past.
Nothing says school spirit like sporting HLA T-shirts. There are so many options to choose from and everyone sported a different look.
Creativity came out on Thursday for Backwards Day. Much of what was seen caused people to do double takes. We got to see many different sides of the people we see every day, just not in the way you would think. Throughout the day, people were asking which way is up?
Let us talk hair. Crazy Hair Day was the one day you could leave home and forget about it. Actually, fashion statements were made.
There were a number of HLA families that participated during spirit week. Check out the HLA Facebook page to see the pictures families shared with us. HLA students have got spirit and a lot of style.
